While on the ride Kenny and dad spotted some horses (5 or 6) crossing their path. My dad wanted to stop and watch them. The horses were crossing the path, but started to get antsy and started making noises to the others... all of a sudden they started to run.... toward the guys! Kenny took off riding away from those horses as fast as he could! Dad said they weren't running in their direction and laughed so hard ... I think it was won of those had to be there stories, but we got a laugh when they guys told us.

After the yardsale Donna, Blair and I went out to Arizona Mills and spent all our yardsale money! Took us 4 hours to make and 4 hours to spend!!
While we were gone Kenny went and played softball on his men's team and then headed out to Buckeye to visit with his mom and grandma. They had a nice dinner and watch the Suns game.
We both had a BUSY, fun Saturday.

It was a nice service and I loved their rendition of Amazing Grace. Everyone in the group was very nice so we might end up going to a weekend service just to try it out (although we just love Radiant).
Afterwards we went to Starbucks for some yummy drinks.

While we didn't end up getting our Irish Food we had an awesome meal and enjoyed the time with our friends.
Hope everyone had an awesome St. Patty's Day too!!

Kenny had a good time catching up and meeting Dan- who is a riot! He would defiantly be called a good ol boy : )
After dinner we went bowling and Kenny bowled a 218 followed by a 198! Must be that yummy stake from Texas Roadhouse.

We played softball at 3PM... and lost, but we both had good hits and got on base. After softball we went to Walmart and Best Buy to look for a new radio... I got this awesome one that hangs on the wall so now I have a whole extra shelve on my book shelf to use (I am spring cleaning...it is a slow process). Kenny already hung it for me : )
After Bingo we stopped at Safeway to get some meat for Kenny. He is doing the low carb thing and already lost 8 lbs! I am so jealous, but I love my bread, pasta, fruit etc too much.... Wish him luck everyone!!

Catherine is currently living in Utah and the last time we talked she told me she was a little concerned about bringing home her little baby in the snow... it inspired me to make her a super warm quilt!! I didn't finish it before the baby was born, but I got to give it to her in person rather than mailing it which was really nice. I made it with 100% cotton (quilt store quality) fabrics, warm and natural batting and minke for the backing--- it is WARM. When I was doing the hand sewing for the binding I had to take a break I got so hot. The quilting was done by a long arm quilter Sharon (very hard to see in the picture, but it is a bunch of swirly hearts)
I hope Catherine doesn't mind, but I am going to share her words... I think the greatest appreciation for me is knowing the person really liked what I made for them...
"The quilt you made is amazing. I love it so much. When we had lunch at my moms house she was wrapped in it for her whole nap. I love the fabric & the quilted hearts are so cool. Thanks sooooo much. I am glad you were able to make it & see Marlee. Thanks again"
We headed out to Buckeye for lunch at Kenny's Nana's house. She made us homemade chicken n dumplings- from scratch!! It was delicious. Kenny did his honey do lists for his mom and Nana while Sarah and I headed out to the Goodyear Market. We came across a game (LRC) she had been looking for and got a artificial plant for your new house. It was a pretty great afternoon.
Next we headed to church and enjoyed a guest Pastor Mark Batterson. He is a Pastor from Washington DC and holds his weekly services in the Subway stations! He ministers to the 20 somethings that are currently writing the laws for our nation-- awesome guy!! I bought his book- In a pit with a Lion which actually talks about our church, Radiant and the amazing growth and what God is doing right here in Surprise, AZ. Neat-o
After church Kenny had a softball game. It was an 8PM game and chilly!! The team didn't really play well, but were missing a number of their regular players so I am sure next week will be better.
Anyway, that was our busy and fun Saturday!!
